When Pastor Chris Oyakhilome announced the theme of the month the LoveWorld Nation rejoiced. This month is the Month of Knowledge and during this time the global congregation is accelerating their spiritual knowledge. It is a very exciting time in which the whole world will show an increase in knowledge.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has told the LoveWorld Nation about the different types of knowledge. If we are to learn something new it is most illuminating to know about the types of knowledge that we have according to the Holy Bible. The scripture is the Word and the truth.
Pastor Chris is a most amazing teacher and his teachings are available on the Pastor Chris Digital Library. This is an amazing resource that is replete with messages reflecting the highest levels of knowledge. The messages that Pastor Chris imparts take us from glory to glory with our knowledge.
What is knowledge?
Pastor Chris talks about three types of knowledge about the scriptures. He asks which type of knowledge will help us know our path and have lasting success. The knowledge God wants us to have a strong foundation so the building is secure.
Ephesians 3:19 “And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God”.
We all should know the love of Christ. Our Man of God tells us that this is from the Greek word Gnosco. This is a revelation knowledge that comes with no thinking required. The blessing is to know the love of Christ. This knowledge passes all.
This is compared to another Greek word for knowledge which is Gnosis. This is intellectual knowledge and the type of knowledge that comes from books and science. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has taught us that the Revelation of God is higher the science. Science can’t reveal the love of Christ or the Passion. You can’t get this knowledge through intellect only by revelation will it come to you as it is beyond human understanding.
1 Corinthians 8:1 “Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.”
In this passage, we come across the word ‘Eido’. This is knowledge of awareness that we do know things or facts, it is the completion of knowledge. People say, ‘I recognize the fact.’ This knowledge is facts we have gained through humanity as we all read books. It puffs you up.
Quoting from Acts 24 “And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that way, he deferred them, and said, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter.”
They had knowledge of God and Jesus through ‘Diaginosco.’ This is an evaluation of the subject matter to determine the case that has been brought in front of him. Pastor Chris tells us that this type of knowledge comes with analysis here.
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.”(Ephesians 1:17) This knowledge is ‘Epignosis.’ Which is the word for full and exact knowledge or complete knowledge? Pastor Chris Oyakhilome explains that it is no longer a revelation you have and can relate to this knowledge and use it. Here you have passed the level of questioning as you have full knowledge.
Knowing about knowledge
Pastor Chris says you should continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives. He is talking about wisdom and get absolute knowledge and awareness. In that revelation, the light domes on your spirit and turns on the light. Glory to God.
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him”(Ephesians 1:17) Everything grows and Pastor Chris has told us that we are more than conquerors, we are celebrating the victory. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said, “Instead come to the mountain top and have God-given ideas as we are his heirs we can receive it from God.” This knowledge helps us be ready to receive all the Glory that he has granted us.
